‘Tis the season for frights and spooks. And some of those scares may come from the weather. It seems there’s a phobia for everything these days. Here are some weather-related fears for this spooky day.

Halloween can be a trick or a treat in Kentucky. In years past it’s been fang-tastic, creepy, boo-tifully balmy, spooky with stormy, frightfully frigid, and even scary with snow. The warmest Halloween was in 1950. Lexington’s chilliest daytime high on Halloween was 37° in 1993. That was also one of only four years that a Halloween snow has been reported in Lexington. Most recently in 2014 a trace of snow was recorded.

This Halloween has some tricks and treats up its sleeves. The day began balmy and sunny. For Halloween night, we are tracking rain. The northern parts of the Bluegrass have already seen rain. The line of showers will creep southeast through the evening. If you’re trick-or-treating or heading out to a Halloween party around the Bluegrass, expect damp conditions. Southeastern Kentucky, showers will encroach through the evening.
